order to choose where she wants to live. One reply is from a
cousin of hers, Judith Starkadder, inviting her to come to them at
Cold Comfort Farm. "My man did your father wrong," states the
letter. Flora decides, against the advice of her friend Mary
Smiling, to go to Cold Comfort Farm, where she finds her relatives
in need of 'sorting out' and she sets herself to the task!
